violence from spilling over. >> late last year, turkey asked nato for a missile defense system. the pieces of that system came off of the boat from germany. >> the military equipment is now in turkey and not far from the border in syria and the organization insists that the hardware stays in this country. nato says that they are not crossing the border to get directly involved in the conflict in syria. -- >> germany and the u.s. have agreed to send patriot missiles to germany. -- >> our mission is to protect the town, are ranged between nato and the turkish allies, so i don't see any involvement in any offensive action, that is not what we're here for. >> turkey insists that they can handle the rest of their defense. the war is just on the other side of the fence. the patriots will stop missiles, but they won't stop the more immediate threat of the stray bullets, but still, turkey wants the hardware. they are taking every measure to keep the country save. the patriots are expected to be operational by the start of next month. -- >> thousands of musicians marched down pennsylvania avenue as
. >> tensions are running high in some parts of turkey as nato gears up to get its missile defense system up and running this weekend. turkey has requested help because of concerns that the syrian civil war could spill over to its borders. the missiles have been sent by the united states, germany, and the netherlands, but not everyone approves of the move. on tuesday, a proud of -- a crowd of protesters. >> demonstrations against the patriot missile deployment have been taking place for days. the confrontation and threats against german soldiers reportedly arose from a protest like this one on monday. the five germans strolling through town in civilian clothing may have been mistaken for americans. turkish security forces managed to bring the germans to safety. the german government has called it a serious incident. >> this is unacceptable. against the backdrop of this incident, it will be necessary to speak closely with the turkish authorities about the threat posed to german soldiers. we expect our host country, turkey, to inspect the security of our soldiers when they move around in the c
expect from their nato ally. the need to say the european nations can't pay ransom money to terrorist groups because that simply fuels them to buy arms and soldiers. >> michael: but is nato looking to the united states richard to be the nation that says okay you guys listen up what happened with germany and france they paid these ransoms and got these 18 people out, and now they have funded these groups? why is it incumbent upon the united states then to be -- you know -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> the united states pays more than two-thirds of the nato budget so we have a lion's share of influence. the money paid to save the germans and french backpackers, that trend has continued. now we have encouraged -- our allies have encouraged this industry by rewarding it with money, and instead of reacting -- using other means. >> michael: of course it is going to continue if it has worked. i want to ask you as someone who has a degree of expertise in this, where do you see this going now? and what would america's role be? on the ground, with drones? what is your tak
and playing loud music and women without had covers in the house. nato issues a press release and makes statements anonymously in the media where they said the u.s. forces had stumbled upon the aftermath of the taliban honor killing and implied the family -- that the women were killed by their own murderer's family members. so in the course of the film, we investigate the night raid and learned the individuals who did that raid were members of the joint special operations command and we know that because the then head of the joint special operations command showed up in this village with scores of afghan soldiers and u.s. forces. we showed this in the film, there is a scene where they offload a sheep and offer to sacrifice the sheep to ask for forgiveness, and afghan cultural tradition. it was meant to be a gesture of reconciliation. the offload the sheep and offering to sacrifice them in every place where the raid had taken place, the admiral goes into the home and says his men were responsible for killing women and the police commander and he asks for forgiveness from the head of the
that the white house is going to proceed with a nomination of general allen to be the nato supreme allied commander now that he's been cleared by the pentagon investigation going back to the petraeus case. thanks to all of you, david sanger and kelly o'donnell, of course, and chris cillizza, see you later. thanks very much. >>> clinton today put a lot of blame on congress for withholding aid. >> we have to get our act together between the administration and congress. if this is a priority and if we are serious about trying it help this government stand up security and deal with what is a very dangerous environment, from east to west, then we have to work together. i also hope we're looking forward, because right now, libya is still dangerous, it is still in a very unstable status, and whatever we can do for them, we at least ought to agree we need to do and get out there and start delivering. >> one of the members of the senate foreign relations committee, who is asking questions, is the new hampshire senator jean chacin, former governor, democratic member of the committee, who was in the
of the speeches you've made recently i've been going over them, you talk a lot about nato and the fact that the experience in afghanistan is not -- >> it's not over yet. >> it hasn't been a terrifically happy one for nato and that that might sort of lead to a process in which we just don't have the will anymore or the intention to stay on the same scale we've been before particularly given the perception that our partners are not pulling their weight. how do you think we are going to be able to keep nato going? what would it take, in your view, to sustain nato and keep it relevant given our budgetary restrictions? >> well, i think an intervening event that poses a threat, um, we saw a little resurgence of nato in the libya situation where clearly the united states was not going to take the lead, was going to supply reconnaissance, intelligence, surveillance and a little bit of back up. but it was either nato getting together and going forward or not. that was the threat of, you know, the threat of a destabilized libya, the immigration consequences of that for southern europe, the histo
and algeria. the united states and greece have been nato allies for sixty years. greece's defense expenditures will likely drastically reduced because of the crisis you've been describing here. how do you see them contributing to the international security in the years ahead? thank you. >>if i understand you correctly how greece can contribute to europe. for a stability for -- for most stability. greece is a country that finds itself or that borders countries that are in a state of flux. it is a country that the european union and nato from our perspective is that greece needs to be bridge of friendship and stability in the area. of course, greece cannot face and solve a series of issues all alone. as you mentioned earlier, which have other causes, the irrespective to greece and that harm stability not only in the region but the on worldwide scale. greece could help and contribute within the framework of the organizations to which it belongs. in order for -- in order to believe the crisis in the areas, a major issue that is of concern to us in recent times what is going to happen in -- enablin
to become supreme commander of nato forces in europe. white house officials said today his nomination is no longer on hold. that's after the pentagon inspector general cleared allen of any wrongdoing in e-mail exchanges with a tampa, florida woman. allen steps down as overall coalition commander in afghanistan next month. the air force's top general vowed today to put an end to sexual misconduct within the service. figures for 2012 show some 800 reported incidents. many of the cases stemmed from a scandal at lackland air force base near san antonio. an investigation there found 32 instructors allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with nearly 60 female service members. at a house hearing, the air force chief of staff general mark welsh called the numbers appalling. >> there is no way we can allow this to happen again. the air force goal for sexual assault is not simply to lower the number. the goal is zero. it's the only acceptable objective. the impact on every victim, their family, their friends, the other people in their unit is heartwrenching. and attacking this cancer is a full-t
nato and the u.s. umbrella over nato and the u.s. taking money into nato. there are some in the fighting moments coming read this have to the future of nato and the transatlantic relationship in dealing with this range of issues going all across the south of europe that has a direct effect on them. there's a day of reckoning. i wish i could be more optimistic on it. we all see what the fiscal constraints are in the austerity being proposed. they are going to have to come to the point with some tough decisions to make because the u.s. is not going to be there at the level land presence and protection that they are used to and have relied on in the past. >> mr. mcfarland. >> our budget legacy -- nice to see you. >> thank you for coming. more than 30 years of service. the energy and natural resources committee, we are continuing to san $400 billion a year overseas to buy oil. your colleague senator lugar for a long time told us the only way to beat a cartel, sponsored open fuel standard, basically make a competitive market, the move, automobiles, trucks, weather is electrici
and we should pay tribute to all those in the european union, alongside nato, who made that happen. but today them overriding, the main purpose of the european union is different. not to in piece, but to secure prosperity. the challenges come not from within this continent but from outside. from the surging economies in the east and the south. now, of course, a growing world economy benefits us all, but we should be in no doubt that a new global race of nations is underway today. a race for the wealth and for the jobs of the future. the map of global influence is changing before our eyes. and these changes are already being felt by the entrepreneur in the netherlands, the worker in germany, the family in britain. so i want to speak to you today with urgency and frankness about the european union and how it does change, both to deliver prosperity and to retain the support of its peoples. but first, i want to set out the spirit in which i approach these issues. i know that the united kingdom is sometimes seen as an argumentative and rather strong-minded member of the family of europe
's talk about some of the implications before we get to the blaming. the nato commission is being held up at this point, right, for general allen. they're still deciding if there's an implication for him in this. >> absolutely as a four-star you have a limited amount of time where you can serve in between positions and if you don't get confirmed which the nato position requires senate confirmation you revert back to the lower grade, so there's a real personal incentive to get this thing going as quickly as possible so he can move on to his next job and that clearly is in doubt. >> we talked about remember the 30,000 pages of documents which jill kelley tells howie, sunny, it's more like a couple hundred so that to me seems to be here and here and i get there's a difference between 300 or 400 e-mails and pages of documents. it's a little bit apples and oranges but she wouldn't tell howie, didn't let him read the e-mails, as you're a lawyer on this panel, how do you feel about that? >> you know, i'm concerned by it. it seems that when someone is being less than transparent, when there's som
alongside nato who made that happen. but today the overriding and main practice of the european union is different. not to win peace, but to secure prosperity. challenges come not from within this continent, but from outside it. from a surging economy of the east and the south. a growing world economy benefits us all. we should be in no doubt that a new global rates of nations is underway today. a race for the wealth and for the jobs of the future. .. and the industrial revolution to nonfans to write european history in europe has helped to radars. has made a contribution to europe. we have provided a haven to those fleeing tyranny in persecution. we keep the flame of liberty alive. across the continent, and silent cemeteries played hundreds of thousands of british servicemen who gave their lives for europe's freedom we paid our parts for the iron curtain and champ named into the e.u. of those countries that lost so many figures to communists. contained in this history is a crucial point about britain, our natural character, our attitude to europe. britain is characterized, but above
and hostilities are concerned. we will take it from nato and the u.n. to, clearly a violation of the constitution. host: any reaction? guest: that is over the top because nobody in the a restoration has ever said they would ignore congress and only listen to the u.n. and nato. i have been critical of this administration, too. i have been critical of certain policies in places like afghanistan or iraq, but let's keep our differences on the policy level. let's acknowledge the fact that secretary clinton and her colleagues are honest policymakers trying to do the best job they can in a typical set of circumstances. let's not question their motives. let's focus on genuine policy differences. i have those policy differences with this administration. it is crazy to me to engage in all of this conspiracy theory and name-calling. >> what do you think will be the biggest -- host: what do you think will be the biggest concern, or two, with this administration? guest: my concern is that you will see more retreat and retrenchment from this administration. my concern is that the administration pursued a fairl
was going to become engaged through nato in ways that met our interest, i think, at the time, and got the job done. i thought it was smart. i thought the way he approached that was, in fact, very effective. and the results, obviously, were exactly what we wanted to achieve. we could tell if we did this, senator mccain you were deeply involved in that, we recommended no fly. we pushed for certain things, and those things were put into place. and it was affected without american boots being put on the ground at a time where we had just come out of iraq and we have american soldiers, largest number, in afghanistan. and so i think the american people approved of the way in which that was handled. now, the aftermath of all of these places -- i asked every member of the committee, we need to spend some time on this, all of us. there is a monumental transformation taking place. this is the biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. as all of us know, many of the countries lines drawn, were drawn in relatively arbitrary fashion. people were put i
. >> a number of nato countries permit women in combat, like canada, france, germany, and australia. the british do not. the secretary's action technically opens all jobs but the services can still apply for specific exemptions if women are not able to meet specific standards. >> what i worry about is lowering standards, saying that we have people on our team that can't carry their weight. >> they mean that literally. some soldiers are hauling around more than 100 pounds. tank loaders have to lift a shell out of a confined space, spin it around and push it into the breach. a senior defense official says that standard cannot be lowered. officials have identified specific physical requirements for each combat job. next they will turn that information over to scientists who can build physical tests to measure if a man or woman is fit for the front lines. >> at recruiting stayintions, y can't say lift this ammo and put it in the tank. >> the marines are going to take 400 male marines, 400 female marines and have them perform the physicals tasks for these jobs and come up with some sort of standard p
on whether to go forward with general allen's nomination to be the nato supreme commander. his nomination was put on old by the white house, following some of these allegations and the outcome of the inspector general review. it will be up to the white house now to decide whether or not they're going to support him to be the nato commander. but once again, the inspector general clearing general allen of allegations he wrote potentially inappropriate e-mails to jill kelly. that just coming in. we'll take a quick break. much more news right after this. well now i'm her dietitian and last year, she wasn't eating so well. so i recommended boost complete nutritional drink to help her get the nutrition she was missing. and now she drinks it every day. well, it tastes great!
